NETS is holding its first ever Regional Satellite Conference in Latin America April 2-3, 2019 in San Jose, Costa Rica at the Intercontinental Hotel. Conference registration and hotel information, as well as preliminary agenda, coming soon!

Whether you are responsible for leading an international road safety program or managing a fleet of vehicles, you know that spreading safe driving messages to drivers in Latin America represents unique challenges.
 
What if you had an opportunity to learn and share best practices and solutions across industries with other fleet safety managers who face similar challenges?  
 
Conference speakers will include:
 
  • NETS member organizations who operate in the region
  • Local road safety advocates
  • Government officials (invited)
  • Latin America NCAP (invited)
This inaugural event represents a valuable opportunity to learn about the variety of road safety initiatives and challenges specific to the region, and to share your own experiences.
 
NETS Sponsors will also have an opportunity to contribute with presentations of innovative approaches and technologies as well as exhibit space to highlight new technologies. 
 
The best solutions are the ones that come from open collaboration with your fellow road safety professionals through our shared experiences.
